Dearest God in Heaven,
My soul you have gifted with a deep need for them, let that need never lessen. As the sun gleams on elegant head, always may my throat tighten at the sound of gentle nicker.
Horses have been a part of my life since my earliest memories. If I was not riding my horse, I was reading a horse book to learn more about these wonderful creatures that filled my every thought and dream. Horses were and are heaven on earth to me. There is nothing quite as wonderful as knowing that you can whisper your thoughts, hopes, dreams and prayers in your horse’s mane and know they are reaching God’s ear. Their manes have dried many tears and helped my heart soar.
I have been blessed with being owned by 2 very special horses. One of which is still being loved be a special little girl in TX. His name is Monster, or Mo for short. Mo came into this world to owners who knew nothing about raising a baby horse, Mo was mishandled and came to be very untrusting of anyone. I was told about Mo and that they were going to run him through a sale barn. I purchased Mo when he was 8 months old and you couldn’t touch him. I spent every moment I could in his pen with his food at my feet reading and ignoring him. Eventually he came around and we became pretty good friends and partners.
Mo was my go to for everything, just as God is when I need to unburden myself. Mo, like God was always there for me when life and people seemed to be letting me down. I could cry on Mo’s shoulder and revel in the freedom that he and God allowed me to have. Mo would carry my troubles away for just a little while and when I climbed down off of his broad back, those problems didn’t seem as big any longer.
I cannot imagine a life without the feel of their silky, smooth coat under my hand, the soft gaze of their intelligent eye, and the welcoming nicker as I call to them when I see my best friend. Even in these troubling times, I know that there is someone there to listen to me when I have a problem, from my horse’s mane to God’s ear….
